Only at Hotlen Driving School, we have educated over 60,000 students within the region of Auburn since 1989. Compared with other driving schools within Auburn, we're also the only school in Placer County that features brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
Apart from teaching the appropriate methods of driving, our Auburn students learn the rules of the road and learn defensive strategies. Our driving school has a special manner in which helps every single student to grasp the different driving situations they might encounter on the road.
Our approach includes 3-4 driving sessions that are structured, smartly designed and quite thorough. See "teen driving" for explanation of lessons.
For the past 20 years, we have operated our driving school on High Street. We are just on block away from Placer High School. We provide ample parking in the back of the building for allparents.
Our friendly workers has also been a important influence in helping us build our driving school since we've opened our doors. If you favor a male or female instructor, we can do this too.
Sofia Hotlen, founder and owner of Hotlen Driving School has always been devoted to teaching. Ms. Hotlen holds a BA from SJSU and a MS in Human Resources Compensation Management from Sacramento State University.
Another important factor is that we truly care for our Auburn students and are passionate about teaching every single student that walks into our driving school. The vast majority of our students (60,000.00 +) have passed the written and driving test at the DMV.
We teach Auburn each student on an individual basis. After each lesson, we talk to parents what their youngster needs to practice so that they can develop the self esteem to go on with the class.
We also have a "pay as you go" plan to accommodate parents that can't find a way to pay a one single payment. Courses are spread out in a 6 month period on a monthly basis until they're prepared to take the driving test.
